Tuesday, April 20th, WordWeavers held their monthly meeting. Marilyn Boone, Denise Jarmole, Rita Durrett and Jennifer McMurrain were all in attendance.
The conversation was based mostly around different approaches to finding editors and literary agents. Marilyn handed out a very effective tool on writing your 25 word blurb for editor and agent meetings:
A character (the who) wants a goal (the what) because he/she is motivated (the why), but he/she faces conflict (the why not).
(Name) wants (goal to be achieved) because (motivation for action), but he/she faces (conflict standing in the way).
Jennifer was unable to do the presentation on Facebook and Blogger due ironically to techinical difficulties.
OWFI was also discussed. Denise, Jennifer, Diana, and Rita will all be attending the OWFI conference next weekend. Jennifer will be representing WordWeavers at this years delegates meeting. We wish all the WordWeavers luck in the OWFI contest. Break a pencil! (Our way of saying "Break a leg".)
The next meeting will be May 18th at 7pm at the Bartlesville Public Library in Meeting room B.
